I won!

Nothing super big, but I still won! I played Bunco last night with some teachers at my school. I won first place! I ended up winning $25. Considering that I put in $5, I only won $20. Second place won $20.

I'll take it! The sad part is...that's only about 1/3 a tank of gas for me!

When I started driving, I'm pretty sure that I could fill up my whole tank for $20, or maybe even less!



While winning is fun, the best part of Bunco was meeting baby Louie! Ramsey (a literacy specialist at my school) gave birth to Louie on May 23, so he's almost a month old. He is absolutely adorable! I got to hold him for a while. He kept moving around and stretching, but then fell asleep. I didn't realize how good babies are for your arms! After holding him for a while (maybe 20+ minutes?), my arms were sore!

Our friends are coming over tonight with their little boy Noah, who is about 6 months old (posted about him previously). Maybe I'll get another arm workout in! I definitely need to tone up my arms for my dress!

Looks like I need to get some tips from you - I have my first Bunko night, this coming week!! Although I've heard the girls there don't actually play Bunko...its just an excuse to get out and away from men and children.....

Beckie - Bunco is a dice game for 12 people. It's quite easy to play so that you can socialize a lot. I think there are some rules on the internet somewhere. Some people play slightly differently. I've been to 2 different Bunco games, and each was a little different.

Katie - good luck! Hope you win! :-)

Jamie - Have fun! I've heard some Bunco groups just enjoy getting together and drinking more than playing. :-) We currently play during the week. Since we're all teachers, we don't stay up that late and don't drink. That would be awful the next morning! We usually sit around and chat for a while after we're done playing.

Yay for winning anything, even if it's not much! And babies named 'louie' are too cute!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm hearing a lot about Bunco lately and feel really behind. I should really learn to play.
